IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part XV

IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE : Part XV

IF you pull a long long aching face
Thinking this's it the end of my heyday
STOP think again stretch not an oval face
To look rhomboid rubarb in triangular tray

If you pulled a long winding road face
And looped it round a rail-road cross-way
And pulled it through its empty space
You'd likely see many holes in your driveway

If you pulled a long battered face
Some might say that's in no way okay
A battered look looks not long in the face
Others that's alright who cares anyway

Yet if you pulled a long soft lean face
It could tear open some part of the way
Leaving strands of matted hair in its place
Stuff the skull to stop what it might say

So if you must pull your worn-out long face
Thinking what good there be beyond Milky Way
Slam not the door on our teeny-weeny space
Around which star must we ride in chained galley
